Kin Kin Road—Six Mile Creek: replace timber bridge

Design is underway to replace the Six Mile Creek timber bridge on Kin Kin Road, 3km north of Pomona, with a new 2-lane bridge.

To improve safety and reliability the Six Mile Creek timber bridge will be replaced with a wider, 2-lane concrete structure.

To help keep the community connected during flooding events, flood resilience will be investigated.
